Value of a Big Pike

6 posts in this topic

Its going to be interesting to see how much a 36 inch pike is worth in relationship to how much we spend on stocking them..no less the cost of replacing a 40 incher.

Its a statement and an working assessment project of mine that the value of a 36+ inch Pike is of great importance to all of us that buy a license, as soon as we get it all together we'll get it out.

For me, every one over 2 foot is priceless and goes back in the water alive to be caught another day.

Well since pike stocking is about last on the DNR agenda the $$$$ impact is very little in itself. The impact to the fishery is pretty significant though. Every lake needs big predators, be them cats, pike, or muskie. And who knows, hauling in a big pike might make some of those casual fisherman into more serious fisherman whom put more into the economy.

i never look at lures thinking "this is going to bag me a huge fish".... i just look at it and go "this should catch me some fish" and if it does... i buy more.. last year.. i think total i bought about a dozen of those Strike King Rocket Shad... they were an amazing lure.. caught me a lot of snakes and bass... i also probably buy around 2 dozen PMs a year at least.. i never look at the cost of my license/tackle/gear as a "now hopefully this pays for itself" i'm more worried about the actual performance of what i buy more than what its going to catch..

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
